Yoda USB Desk Protector

Yoda Desk Protector Protect desk this will… the Yoda Desk Protector energizes using your computer’s USB port and protects your desk against the Sith and your boss’. If one of the bad guys comes around, Yoda fires up his lightsaber and first warns them to back off. Back off you will… or Yoda will slice your head off using his green lightsaber.

The Yoda Desk Protector comes complete with a super-long USB cable, so even if your last remaining port is way in the back of your tower, Yoda can still be out front where he’s needed. His motion sensor will detect movement between 6 and 9 feet away depending on the lighting in your office. While you’re sitting at your desk you can keep him in silent mode so he doesn’t drive you nuts with his nuggets of wisdom. You can only take so much Jedi Master before you go insane, after all…

Limited Edition 24″ Stormtrooper Super Shogun

Limited Edition 24" Giant Stormtrooper If your dad’s really into Star Wars, you owe it to him to give 24 inches of pure awesomeness in this Limited Edition (only 1200 individually numbered being made for worldwide sale) Stormtrooper. This Stormtrooper is basically a mashup of giant Japanese toys of yesteryear and Star Wars Stormtroopers with free rotating wheels on the bottom of the feet, a highly detailed BlasTech blaster with unfoldable stock, spring loaded “Rocket Punch” firing fist, six points of articulation and painted using the same techniques used by Japanese toy makers of the 70s.

Japan began a toy phenomenon still revered today: the Jumbo Machinder (aka Shogun Warriors in the Mattel releases) – two feet tall, wheels on feet, and spring loaded fists. Well, guess what? The two have now combined in the Limited Edition 24″ Stormtrooper Super Shogun!

Lego Model of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater

As a kid, my favorite thing to build with Lego were houses, believe it or not. So I really wish that Lego had these ‘architecture’ sets back in the day, but now they do. Take the Frank Lloyd Wright house, Fallingwater. Here it is in stunning Lego detail. Fantastic.

This replica comes with a booklet filled with details on its design and history. It measure almost a foot wide.

This isn’t the only architecture set that Lego makes. You can also get models of the Guggenheim Museum, the Taj Mahal, the Empire State Building, the Seattle Space Needle and more.

Perplexus – 3D maze puzzle

Yep, despite video games being the choice of game today, puzzles have not died either. Take a look at Perplexus (nice name) which is a spherical 3-D maze with a ball bearing that you need to navigate around the maze.

There are even ‘save points’ so that you can put Perplexus down for a bit while you rest your tired little brain.

Teckell Glass Foosball Table

Teckell Glass Foosball Table

Recently we’ve found ways to bring retro products in to the modern world and this glass Foosball table by Teckell is no exception; it takes all the ‘traditional’ aspects of gameplay, and mixes it with extreme styling more fitting for today’s world.

The table is made out of glass walls and pitch, and has little wooden pegs for the players, with a basic white net at each side. Unknown is how well this stands up to the abuse I’ve seen doled out to foosball tables. I’ve been party to warping a few rods and breaking a few of those little soccer players!

TuneUp – clean up your iTunes music collection

If you’ve got an iPod or an iPhone, then chances are that you use iTunes as well. You’ve spent hours and days ripping your CDs into iTunes, and well, you’ve got a bit of a mess, because all of the song titles, artists and cover art isn’t there. Sometimes, artist names end up with multiple versions. Ugh. So how do you fix this without spending even more hours and days?

Enter TuneUp from TuneUp Media. Not only does it promise those fixes, but it will also keep track of upcoming concerts based on your music collection and let you know, including links to buy tickets; it will also search the Web automatically and bring you YouTube videos, and other material related to your music.

TuneUp integrates into iTunes, and reminds me of Xobni which plugs into Outlook. TuneUp is free, and not sure what their business model is, so grab it before it gets a price tag.

Inside the Lego time machine

I must agree with Morgan Webb – the Gizmodo venture down into the Lego vault that has every single Lego set ever made is truly amazing, and even though it’s only 2 minutes long, this video totally captures my childhood Lego memories.

What’s even more remarkable is how the author and myself almost have the same single memorable Lego kit – the Lego Space Galaxy Explorer (except mine was the kit with the attached space station – yay me 😉 ).

Remote Control Jousting Knights

One of my all-time favorite arcade games is Joust, but I’m just a poor Geek and can’t afford full-sized arcade games like the Chief Gadgeteer so I have to settle with these little remote control Jousting Knights.

Each set includes two R/C horses, lances, and two brave riders. The goal is simple: knock your opponent off their horse. Because when you do, their control over their horse stops (so they can’t cheat!) All you need is floor space, and you can form tournaments of your own. Since tournaments usually lasted days and days, think of all the work you can ignore as you joust! Could a nobler goal than procrastination exist for the office? We think not. Tilt away, ladies and gentlemen, tilt away!

Air-Musician Virtual Guitar

Strap this wristband on and pretend to be the rock and roll god that only you see yourself as being as you virtually play the Air-Musician Virtual Guitar. Once you’re strapped in you only need to push a button to select a song then you strum away.

Every time you move your wrist you automatically play the next chord in the song. With a bit of rhythm you’ll be playing so well your friends will think you took a crash course with Steven Tyler and bought yourself an invisible guitar.
